Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S to be introduced tomorrow; watch the unveiling as it happens
Tomorrow, we are expecting to see the unveiling of the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro. Apple is also holding its "field trip," which might include the introduction of a new color for the Apple iPhone X in order to jump start flagging sales, and an upgrade to its lowest price Apple iPad slate. Also on the schedule for March 27th is an event being held by Xiaomi, during which we should see the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S become official.
Rumored specs include a four-sided ceramic body equipped with a 6-inch full-screen display. The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform should be under the hood and there is speculation that the Mi Mix 2S will carry 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of high speed UFS storage. A pair of 12MP cameras are said to be on the back of the unit, while a fingerprint scanner is embedded under the display. The unit might offer wireless charging capabilities, and we could see the handset support all global 4G LTE bands.
Tomorrow, we will find out exactly where Xiaomi placed the front-facing camera on the Mi Mix 2S. While some leaked images show a "mini-notch" in the upper right corner of the display, other reports indicate that the sensor will remain on the lower bezel.
If you want to watch the live stream in the U.S., you'll have to get up pretty early in the morning on the East Coast. The event will start streaming at 2am EST tomorrow morning, which is 11pm PDT tonight on the West Coast. The live stream is available through YouTube and you can click on the sourcelink to set a reminder to go off when the festivities begin. However, you just might want to go back to sleep if you live in the states. While Xiaomi is closer than it ever has been to offering its handsets in the U.S., it isn't expected to take the plunge until later this year, or early next year.
